Trigger point therapy​

Trigger points are small, tight knots that develop in your muscles. This therapy uses pressure to relieve muscle tightness and pain.

Gentle sustained pressure is applied into myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate your pain and restore motion.

A pressure overload on a bone or soft tissue structure that leads to increased stress.

Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF)​

This involves the stretching and contraction of your muscle group that is being targeted.

Advanced stretching​

This technique helps to return your soft tissue structures to their normal resting length.

Cupping

Cupping is a technique used to increase blood flow by using cups to create a suction effect.

Dry Needling

This treatment uses fine needles placed into trigger points in your muscle tissue to  help release knots and muscle pain.

  • Tendonitis

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massage focuses on the deeper layers of your muscle tissue. It aims to release chronic patterns of tension in your body through slow strokes and deep finger pressure on the contracted areas. This could either follow or cross the fibres of your muscles, tendons and fascia. The benefits of a deep tissue massage include:

Re-positions​

It re-positions your muscles, tendons and ligaments that may have become bunched and shortened.

Pain relief, energy and well-being​

As your patterns of tension and stress are released, you’ll experience pain relief, increased energy and an improved sense of relaxation and well-being.
